I helped Kate care for the baby all last night, I got up rather late, had breakfast and then went over home and pa and I went to Ann Arbor where I got my trunk and purchased Kate some oatmeal and ½ dozen Oranges. I saw Will Price at the Bank a little while. Pa bought a dozen chairs. I stopped at the depot in Delhi and got my satchel as we came back. My trunk was badly abused on the road. I took the sugar out and brought what Mrs. Neil made for the Queals over here with some syrup, which Fred sent. I am going to stay with Kate again tonight. It has the appearance of raining, but I fear it will not.
